Boilermaker Tailgate Chili
Best chili recipe I've tried so far. I really like the flavor added from the beer-- we used a full cup of Yeungling amber lager. There are many ingredients, but getting a pre-chopped bell pepper blend and using a can of green chiles removed some of the chopping work for me. I sauteed my peppers and onions after cooking the meat, and I omitted the celery. After browning the meat and vegetables, everything cooked in my crockpot for a few hours, went into the fridge overnight, then heated in the crockpot again the next day until it was time for dinner. I worried it would be too spicy based on some reviews, but it wasn't at all. I might even add more cayenne or Tobasco next time. My husband has never loved the chili I've made before, but he and our dinner guest both thought this batch was great. This will be my standard chili recipe now.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
The best pumpkin bread I've ever made! It's sweet and spicy with a mild pumpkin flavor, and the texture is that of a moist muffin. I'm certain I'll use this recipe at least once every holiday season. I had allspice on hand instead of ground cloves, and I doubled my spices and added a teaspoon of Mexican vanilla. My two 9x5 loaves were not done at all after 50 minutes-- I baked them for closer to 1hr 15 minutes total. I froze one, but my husband says I should have just left the spare loaf out on the counter because we've already eaten a large portion of the first loaf. I planned on making a cream cheese frosting, but it's wonderful on its own. Fantastic recipe!

Too Much Chocolate Cake
Wonderful for chocolate lovers! I used mini chocolate chips to keep them from sinking. Very moist, rich cake that's perfect with vanilla ice cream.
